No, but then American football is the most boring sport in the world to watch. They stop the action every 3-10 seconds for minutes at time. No wonder it takes three hours to play 12 minutes.

You forgot to say the words concussion, greed, commercials, Joe Pa, and slave players. Thanks for coming to the thread though!

Who are the ad wizards who came up with these? Does Beef O'Brady's have a clause in the sponsorship agreement that the teams invited have to have so many franchises within 100 miles of the college?

I might as well be honest. 12/19, but in my defense, I was only sure about 7 of those. I'm more of an NFL guy.

We must protect the integrity of the Beef O Bowl system

It started me with the potato bowl, and I live in Idaho. made me chuckle.

18/19 because of the Bacardi Bowl question.
 
2012-12-27 12:45:30 PM
With so many bowl games, we end up getting something like this piece of shiat every year:
BBVA Compass Bowl, January 5 - Pittsburgh (6-6) vs. Ole Miss (6-6)

Does anyone really care about two .500 teams playing a bowl game? What if the NCAA took the shiattiest bowl matchup and made a contest to name that bowl game? Who wouldn't watch two .500 teams play in the UFIA Bowl presented by Fark.com just to hear the announcers keep saying it?

And, in response to the headline...there's a difference?

19/19. I played waaaaaay too much NCAA in college, both times.

I don't really care, but I think they should move up the shiatty bowls before New Years day. Just seems weird that they'd have major BCS bowl games and then more mediocre games after that. There's no reason for the bowls to be spread out as far as they are with plenty open dates in December available.

14 of 19. I'm a big college football fan, but I seldom watch these bowl exhibition games. The "Tebowl" bring to mind the old joke that when the two worst teams in the conference played a meaningless game near the end of the season it was called the "Toilet Bowl".

And just think, if someone (God forbid) gets aggravated enough by ESPN fellating old Tim to go out and up and kill him, there probably would be a Tebowl for real.

Hadn't heard of the name change to 'Heart of Dallas' Bowl

/knew Bacardi Bowl couldn't be correct - you can't have alcohol sponsoring a college event
 
2012-12-27 01:44:36 PM
(is that a real bowl game...i mean. Is that a Rose bowl game. Or is that a Sears bowl game?

Yeah Heart of Dallas just sounded like a new one to me. And since the rest were current names I assumed they weren't going for the history of Bacardi Bowl. (19/19)

I got 16/19.

Does "Beef O'Brady" come in a can?

And to us soccer is just a long kick all game where teams rarely score.

18/19, forgot insight.com changed.

16/19. A Pride of Dallas bowl offends me. Glad to see a team I root for was in one of the real ones this year.
 
2012-12-27 04:02:54 PM
Until the playoff system is play, they're ALL fake.
 
2012-12-27 04:31:05 PM
14/19 I coulda sworn Hooters had a bowl game.
 
2012-12-27 05:51:25 PM
18/19 messed up on the tebowl.
 
2012-12-27 07:07:31 PM
19/19

And FWIW the NCAA should cap the number of bowl games at about half of what it is currently.  Some of these games are just pathetic.
 
2012-12-27 07:20:40 PM
I would've hit 19/19 if it were clear we were talking about still-active bowls only, and the Bacardi Bowl should still be active.

"Does anyone really care about two .500 teams playing a bowl game?"

The the teams and their fan bases do, and that's all that matters.

"And FWIW the NCAA should cap the number of bowl games at about half of what it is currently. Some of these games are just pathetic."

You are the embodiment of STOP LIKING THINGS I DON'T LIKE! No one gives a shiat what you think of those bowls. They're not for or about you and never were or will be.
 
2012-12-28 06:28:08 AM
I remember the good ol' days when bowl games were named after flowers and fruits, not snack foods and dot com companies.
 
2012-12-28 09:58:13 AM
I have a real problem with the sponsor being able to name the bowl. Even if they did sponsor the game for 100 years, the Beef O'Brady bowl will never be prestigious, because it is named after some beef jerky product or canned beef stew, or whatever the hell beef o brady is , and it will never develop any tradition, because next year someone else will be the sponsor and it will have an entirely different name, like say the St John's Wart Remover Bowl.

I break the bowl games down into to categories those that have a little tradition and are worth watching (Orange, Sugar, Rose, Fiesta, Cotton, even the Alamo Bowl) and the no one gives a crap bowls.

Well, you can, they just don't. The ncaa prohibits alcohol only at its events (postseason tournaments). The bowls are independently run.

Just like you can sell beer at regular season games, many venues just choose not to or are restricted by something else, like state law or conference bylaws
